Not sure how the old school color scheme will help out in the win-loss column but I like it... the all white sock & shoe combo just looked wimpy (IMHO).
In other Browns news, their owner Randy Lerner is exploring options in the UK. Specifically he's been linked to a possible purchase of Birmingham based Aston Villa... a premiership soccer team.
